PGVS is a voluntary nonprofit organization established in 1986, focused on social development and addressing issues like health and education in North & East India. Over time, the organization recognized the destructive impact of floods on the communities in Eastern Uttar Pradesh. m
This realization prompted a shift towards a holistic approach to development, integrating disaster risk reduction and management. PGVS expanded its work beyond flood response to cover other hazards, facilitating community-based disaster management initiatives and advocating for policy changes. The organization emphasizes capacity building, involving various stakeholders, and aims to minimize vulnerabilities and risks through mainstreaming disaster preparedness in development efforts.
